Jeff Fisher Cut WR Deon Long For Bringing Girl Back to Rams Training Camp Dorm
Wide receiver Deon Long was probably already a long-shot to make the Los Angeles Rams, but he didn’t do himself any favors by breaking the team’s rules and bringing a female back to his training camp dorm room.
That move by Long is what caused Rams head coach Jeff Fisher to cut him last week. And that news was unveiled during the first episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks.”
Shortly after it was announced, the internet chimed in:
@Cadesmith44 he also would follow the rules.

How about this Rams WR Deon Long. Coach said no guests, he breaks the rule with a woman & got released. How stupid can one person be?

Would Jeff Fisher cut Todd Gurley like he did Deon Long for having a lady in his room? Rules are rules, unless you’re good. #HardKnocks

Deon Long got cut for having a girl drop things off at his room. He then got signed by the Eagles where they could use WR help. Worked out.
